Smoking Loon Wine Company The Original Merlot 2015 Valle Central, Chile

My Rating 84 Points.
Price $9.

Ruby in color with medium intensity and a reddish rim.

Fruity nose of plums, cherries, stewed strawberries, oak, licorice, spices, chocolates, smoke, earth, peppermint, light coffee and black pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with cherries, plums, strawberries, currants, vanilla, licorice, cloves, wood, earth and peppercorn.

Short finish with soft tannins and tangy cranberries.

This is a simple Merlot from Chile. Nicely balanced and easy drinking. Not as fruity as their red blend, but the tangy ending makes it interesting.

Good right out of the bottle, and good for parties or as a sipping wine.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
